I powered through this book in a good way. It was super interesting, especially since I saw so much of what happened … Continue reading Defy the Night Review: Robin Hood with a twist!

If I’m Being Honest Review: Taming of the Shrew “retelling”
I can't remember how I came across If I'm Being Honest, but I remember reading the summary of it and thinking "this is the kind of romance I am very interested in reading."
